Boeing has delivered its 100th 737 outfitted with the Boeing Sky Interior to GOL Airlines one of the world's largest low-cost 737 airlines.

The airplane, a Next-Generation 737-800, was also feature certified performance improvement engines, marking the first airline in Latin America to receive the improved engines.

"GOL continues to do everything possible to diminish fuel consumption and emissions, further reducing its operating costs, which are among the lowest in the sector," said Adalberto Bogsan, GOL's Technical vice-president.

The new CFM56-7BE engine configuration, which is now standard on all production 737s, is an improved design that includes a high and low pressure turbine modification. Coupled with drag reduction improvements that Boeing started phasing into 737 production earlier this year, it will result in lower fuel consumption and maintenance cost savings.

Boeing has improved fuel efficiency of the Next-Generation 737 by 4 to 6% since the first airplane was delivered in 1998.
